    State Controlled Media (CBS).. oopsie Surprised?

    CBS News aired a fake cover of former President George W. Bush's memoir over the weekend, after a staffer apparently got duped by a hoax image floating around the Internet. 

    The image of the faux cover, along with that of several other genuine book covers, was flashed on screen for a fraction of a second during the introduction to a feature package Sunday about how book covers are designed. 

    The title of the Bush book read: "Desision Points ... How I Managed to Go Eight Years Without Making One Good Decision." 

    Save for the headline, the cover image looked similar to that of the real book, "Decision Points."

    CBS issued a statement acknowledging it made a "mistake," saying nobody could see it "because you'd have to freeze the frame to notice it." 

    "Clearly we have to be more careful when downloading material," CBS said, calling the incident a "cautionary tale" about the risks of Internet content

    Ahh, there's the old troll we're used to.

    Haven't missed a beat.

    Of course the real irony is that it was you idiots who brought up that I was using Faux News as a source.

    And then there's the title of this thread that apparently escaped you moron's reading ability. You know, the title in which you wingnuts refer to CBS as a state controlled company. But of course that's not a slam on a news source....

    OHHHH THE IRONY!!!!!!!

    You nutz crack me up. You really do.

    Freakin Priceless!!!!

Yea, that happens all the time.  You burned it?  Well, don't worry, thats understandable.  You still pinky swear its real, right? Good 'nuff

    One has all but to witness the gradual taking over in so many areas by this administration already...as we step one by one towards a form of state controlled socialism. You still think this is some sort of whacko possibility? Be forever on guard for there may well be a point where it may very well be too let.

    Don't forget the consistent anti-gay attitudes of the G.O.P. are more than balanced by Democrat involvement in DADT and DOMA.  And any current charge of racism against conservatives is more than balanced by the fact that there were segregationist Democrats fifty years ago.  Unfortunately, Greg sees only one side of the story.

    Of course Faux News, in the run up to the election, featuring guests who state Obama is a muslim was okeydokey with you.
    Or their giving airtime and credence to the birthers, no biggie, right.
    Or when Beck calls Obama a racist was just dandy.
    Faux News and the New York Post reported completely unsubstantiated rumors that Obama was raised in a Muslim madrasah, gotta be true, it's my people doing it.

    Again, spare me the victim card.
    The self-righteous indignation looks ridiculous.

    Media Matters lies.
    Fox News never highlighted that Obama was a Muslim. To the contrary, liberals (especially a NY Times piece) touted Obama's Muslim family background as a 'diversity' plus, that would somehow help radical Muslims to become more moderate.

    Again with the pathetic attempt to discredit any source you whacko wingnuts don't agree with. I guess you won't believe your lying eyes either.

    For the record, the story came from CNN and has multiple clips on youtube.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhWaiULqkp4
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qC0g5l9kq94
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVixcyj25bc

    DOOCY: Why didn’t anybody ever mention that that man right there was raised — spent the first decade of his life, raised by his Muslim father — as a Muslim and was educated in a madrassa?
    DOOCY:...it was a madrassa and the big question is whether or not any of these revelations about the fact that he was a Muslim — right now I understand he does go to the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, although not a regular parishioner — but raised as a Muslim, went to a madrassa
    DOOCY: Just the fact that his father was a Muslim, he was raised as a Muslim for awhile, and went to a madrassa school in Jakarta.

    As Brave New Films has documented, Fox constantly raised questions about whether Obama is or was a Muslim — and it continues to do so. Just this summer, Laura Ingraham insinuated that Obama’s father being a Muslim was enough to prove the case: “I mean, because if your Jewish, your mother is Jewish, you’re considered Jewish, right?” she said.

    Don't you guys get tired of this?  Neither of you stay on point.  12 Angry Strawmen never actually addressses anything of substance.  His MO is name calling and strawmanning arguments.

    The rest of you just go back and forth.  Many are incapable of actually addressing issues.

    As we said before, there are about 10-15 posters.  I have yet to see a person from a side change their position based on the other sides insight.  Especially the lefties.

    That being said, its Christmas, enjoy it.

    And I saw Laura Ingraham make that comment and its TRUE!!!!  The muslim religion passes from the father not the mother like in Judaism. 

    You may dislike the fact that they brought it up, but nothing they say is false.

    Man, are you a moron.

    Obama never attended a madrassa, idiot.
     ...reporting by CNN in Jakarta, Indonesia and Washington, D.C., shows the allegations that Obama attended a madrassa to be false. CNN dispatched Senior International Correspondent John Vause to Jakarta to investigate.

    He visited the Basuki school, which Obama attended from 1969 to 1971.
    "This is a public school. We don't focus on religion," Hardi Priyono, deputy headmaster of the Basuki school, told Vause. "In our daily lives, we try to respect religion, but we don't give preferential treatment to any religion."

    "It's not (an) Islamic school. It's general," Winadijanto said. "There is a lot of Christians, Buddhists, also Confucian. ... So that's a mixed school."



    Hey numbnutz, if Obama's father was a muslim that makes him the son of a muslim. The same as having a baptist father, you're the son of a baptist.
    I guess logic is a strange concept to you.
    Does your birth certificate say you're a christian?
    Or just that you're intellectually challenged?

    If your parents have an Irish surname and you were born in the US does that make you an Irish citizen?

    No proof is offered by those who make these claims — no sightings of Obama attending a mosque, no pictures of him reading the Koran, praying to Mecca, or observing Islamic holidays with his family. The entire case, such as it is, rests on a confused and error-ridden recitation of Obama's upbringing and purported childhood influences. It also rests on — that is to say, exploits — a deep fear and mistrust of the Muslim faith.

    His father left the family when Obama was 2.  He didn't raise him much at all.

    Re: State Controlled Media (CBS).. oopsie Surprised?

    I never said he IS a muslim.  To argue that he was not being raised as a Muslim while his Dad had him for FOUR years is absurd.  You don't know that.

    A boy born to a jewish mother is considered jewish.  Up until that boy chooses another religion, or No religion he is considered a jew.  With Muslims, it follows the father.

    Period, end of story.  I am pretty certain he IS a christian.  I would bet my house on it.  But it doesn't change what people like Doocy are claiming, that he WAS a muslim, since he was born to a muslim father and was raised by him for four years.

    See 12 Angry tries to imply they are saying he currently is a muslim. Typical far left strawman.  Change the specifics of the discussion to paint the picture you want seen. 

    I will take the facts that we know and assume he was muslim. 

    That being said, I couldn't care less if he IS or WAS a practicing muslim.

    Neither do you or Doocy so that is a lie. There is more evidence that he wasn't raised Muslim so you're just talking out your backside.

    Last time I checked this is the USA and we don't follow any religious tests. Only whacko wingnuts would subscribe to muslim dogma in order to stir controversy.

    I have to say, the equivocating by the wingnuts is remarkable.

    The fact is, that link is only about when Faux News started it's Sherod bashing.
    The fact is that Faux News ran with the un-researched, highly edited story.


    "O’Reilly was forthcoming with the fact that he had taken her statements out of context. “What I did not know at the time was that Sherrod told the story to make” the point that she had learned from her mistakes, he explained, playing another clip from her speech in which she explains how her perspective on race has evolved. “I owe Ms. Sherrod an apology for not doing my homework.”

    But hey, that's what whacko wingnuts do best, try to obfuscate the facts and dodge any reponsibility for their own actions.

    They're like children caught with their hand in the cookie jar, they'll say anything to avoid the consequences of their actions.

    Just another wingnut with a Napoleon complex.

    I guess now that the wingnuts control half of Congress that would make Noise Corp and Faux News 'state controlled media'.
    Or are you invoking the 'it doesn't count when we do it' wingnut double standard...again?

    Must be tough keeping all those double sets of rules straight.

    a simplke question gregg,

    Fox again has been proven to go out of the way to manipulate news and how it is reported. How is this OK in comparison to a problem CBS had once? CBS doesn't employ every GOP OPERATIVE OR CANDIDATE FOR 2012

    Shouldn't you repudiate that?

    You're holding O'Reilly to a higher standard than the Obama administration.
